In 2012, the UNFPA-UNICEF Joint Programme on FGM/C: Accelerating Change continued to strengthen the momentum toward ending FGM/C in one generation.
Since 2008, UNFPA and UNICEF have worked together as one to achieve this goal, in partnership with other UN Agencies, cooperation/development partners and leading NGOs. In 2012, the Joint Programme’s fifth year of implementation, its novel, culturally sensitive human rights-based approach, strategically leveraging social dynamics in favour of abandonment, was implemented in 15 African countries: Burkina Faso, Djibouti, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, The Gambia, Guinea, Guinea
Bissau, Kenya, Mali, Mauritania, Senegal, Somalia, Sudan and Uganda.
Building on evidence-based strategies identified by the 2008 Inter-Agency Statement on the elimination of FGM/C, the Joint Programme supported 10 complementary outputs in 2012.
